MULTI-AWARD WINNING SOPRANO
KATHERINE JENKINS ANNOUNCES TWO
NEW ZEALAND SHOWS
Having performed in some of the most iconic venues around the world, multi-award
winning performer Katherine Jenkins will soon add two New Zealand dates to the list,
a handful of prestigious theatres in Australia and New Zealand to the list, with
Auckland and Christchurch show dates announced for November.
This is a long awaited return for this much celebrated artist, who was last in Australia
and New Zealand with Plácido Domingo performing arena shows in 2011.
Britain’s best-selling classical artist of the past 25 years, who first came to public
attention when she sang at Westminster Cathedral, honouring Pope John Paul II’s
silver jubilee in 2003, will land in New Zealand in November, after a short run of shows
in Australia. Katherine Jenkins will perform at Christchurch’s Isaac Theatre Royal on
November 12 and Auckland’s ASB Theatre on November 13.
“When I performed in Christchurch in 2011 with Placido Domingo, I always said I
would return to see the city rebuilt and in a stronger place,” says Katherine Jenkins.
“I already feel emotional and excited at the thought of singing there in November
and meeting the incredibly inspirational people who helped put on the charity
concert those years ago.”
Following on from the success of her debut album PREMIERE, which topped the
classical charts for eight weeks in a row, making her the fastest-selling soprano of all
time, Katherine Jenkins continued her meteoric rise to fame, with performances at
the Rugby World Cup, at Buckingham Palace for The Queen, at the Nobel Peace
Prize Concert in Oslo and iconic venues including Wembley Stadium and The
Sydney Opera House.
Since becoming an international name, Katherine Jenkins has gone on to release 11
critically acclaimed studio albums, perform for the troops in Afghanistan, receive the
Order of the British Empire (OBE) and numerous music awards, solidifying herself as
one of the world’s most prolific crossover artists.
